Help the Red Cross...Continued

Many many thanks to those of you who helped with my effort to aid Japan in the aftermath of the terrible earthquake and tsunami. To date I have been able to donate $140.00 to this effort and I would not have been able to do even that without the help of my generous customers. (Not to mention they have helped me reach the front page of Etsy- no small feat, I might add.) In light of recent terrible destruction in our own country at the hands of tornadoes, both in Joplin, MO and across the south, I have decided to dedicate $10.00 from every sale of my red cherry blossom pillows to the Red Cross indefinitely. I am looking for other ways to help out those who have been affected, and will update as soon as I decide what is the best way to offer my assistance. Thanks again!

A Year since my last post

Wow, time sure flies when you are busy! I have let a whole year go by without posting a thing, guess I kinda suck as a blogger. So, what's new with me, you ask? Well, for starters, I am officially getting our whole second income from my business. I can't say it's enough yet, but we are managing to scrape by, which is enough to give me hope for the future. I have figured out that most of my business comes from my hand painted items, so I have expanded from pillows into purses, handbags, and e-reader covers as well, check them out!


Also this year I have introduced Cookie Nummie Monsters to the world! A fun and funny little monster that can be personalized and comes in so many different shapes, sizes, and colors. My kids love theirs and have inspired me to make them for the world. They have long arms that tie, for attaching to strollers, backpacks, purses, etc. or just a great way to lug them around. It has been so fun for me designing and creating these monsters, and so much fun for Allie and Sofie to get new ones all the time. :)


So, come check out all my new stuff, and I promise I will post more often.... maybe.
